Making Soup!

Year 3 designed, prepared and made a healthy soup this week and were delighted when they discovered it contained all of our 5 a day! They learnt how to peel and chop safely and with the help of Matthew Magpie were able to cook it over a fire in the beautiful woodland before having a taste test. Some of us loved it, some were not so keen!

Trip to Chelmsford Museum

I was so proud of year 3 on their recent trip to Chelmsford Museum to end our topic of 'from stone age to iron age'. They demonstrated their knowledge with great enthusiasm and were wonderfully behaved throughout. We had the opportunity to take part in great activities such as cave painting, soap knapping and even got to spin our own wool!

Life Bus

We had a great time on the life bus last week with Nancy and Harold the Giraffe! We learnt all about the brain and even got to see inside our bodies to see how everything works! Everyone participated well and engaged in some in depth discussions about whether things were helpful or harmful. We discovered that even some things that we thought were helpful such as medicine could be harmful if misused. 

Learning Outside in Year 3

We have been doing lots of outdoor learning in our first half term, including using natural diennes to demonstrate place value and making our own 'rounding hills' to help us know whether to round up or down!
We have also had a go at making our own Stone Age instruments, using natural objects to produce different sounds.

Stone Age to Iron Age

Our first topic this year has sparked a lot of interest and questions about how people lived so differently during the Stone Age compared to how we live today. We have been looking at how they built their homes, what they ate and what they did for entertainment. This week, we explored cave painting and recreated ‘Cueva de las Manos’ (cave of the hands) before transforming our classroom into caves by covering underneath the tables and walls with paper! Outside, we made our own natural paint using berries and petals and used sticks, leaves and feathers to produce our own cave markings. This was lots of fun but we discovered just how difficult it was to make and use compared to the paint we are used to today.

Hello and welcome to Year 3’s class blog. We have had a fantastic start to the year getting settled into our new classroom and working hard to achieve ‘superhero’ status on our new chart!
